12 cheetahs have come from South Africa to Kuno National Park in Madhya Pradesh.
Twelve cheetahs from South Africa will reach Kuno National Park in Madhya Pradesh on February 18. Of the 12 cheetahs, seven are male and five are female.
The first group of Namibian cheetahs reached Kuno National Park in Madhya Pradesh on September 17 last year as part of the ambitious cheetah reintroduction programme.
The second group of Cheetahs started their journey to Kuno on 17 February from O.R. Tambo International Airport in Gauteng.
In early 2023, the governments of South Africa and India signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on cooperation on reintroducing the cheetah to India. The MoU facilitates cooperation between the two countries to establish viable and secure cheetah populations in India and ensures that expertise is shared and exchanged to promote cheetah conservation.
